Innovation Camp 2018

“Mind blowing, inspiring, fun can’t wait for the next one”

“Really great masterclass. Gave the wow to think, reflect, share and be inspired”.

Think freedom, metamorphosis, breakthrough and ‘I can do that too’ insight.

At Innovation Camp we seek to generate ideas for changemakers driven by the future of engagement, fundraising and communications, with a pinch of ‘How to innovate’.

In today’s dynamic world, new social trends and technologies move us in new directions; NGOs need to adapt to, and alter, these directions. This third edition of Innovation Camp will help you figure out how to be a catalyst for innovation within your NGO and across the sector, helping you rethink your vision, strategy, product and technology for public mobilisation and fundraising.

You’ll be inspired by people from outside and inside the NGO sector. This year We have a speakers lineup that you will love: Katherine Macklin (Head of Innovations, Unicef UK), Duncan Cook (CEO, 3 SIDED CUBE), the wonderful Marco Gerris (choreographer and creative director of ISH company) and many more. And we promise: You will never, ever forget the taste of ‘sweet’ methods of visualisation and mobilisation we have in store for you ….



Working with innovation managers at leading NGOs, along with guest speakers from start-ups, innovation labs and trend hunters, you will:
